TL; DR: Since July 16, you can get The Game Design & Development package for just $203 instead of $1,519 — that’s an 86% discount.

If you try to enter game design and development, the learning curve could be steep. With so much software and skills to master, trying to learn it all on your own could be a difficult undertaking. If you want advice when you go for a game development career, then try The Game Design & Development Bundle, now on sale for $203, down from $1519. This seven-course package contains instruction on Unity, Maya, and other common industry tools.

These classes could be early game design skills accessible to people new to the industry, starting with a 216-hour introduction, Game design for beginners, taught by One Education professionals. This course could help you get started with the basics, including learning about game types, loops and arcs, as well as game layers and where to find free resources. It goes so far as to teach you a bit about the publishing process and crowdfunding, as well as the top 10 mistakes people often make when developing a game.

After the introduction, you can move on to more specialized instructions. Learn how to use one of most popular game engines in industry in Introduction to Unity Game Development. Then expand that knowledge with Maya & Unity 3D: Modeling environments for mobile games.

These are not the only tools you will use. You also have the option to practice with Gamemaker Studio 2. Although this software is not included in the bundle (neither Unity nor any other game development software), it is still a complete preview of the use of a potentially exciting tool.

Normally, The Game Design & Development package reportedly retails for $1519, but for a limited time it’s on sale for just $203.
